Mr. FISHER.

No, what I said was that of this $18,000 $15,000 is a new vote. The $3,200 which has been voted for general statistics for many years back has always been expended in the payment of certain salaried officers who are doing work on the Yearbook. The work I have spoken of was other work, but none of this money was spent in the way of gathering information from outside sources, it was only spent on work connected with the compilation of the census and the preparation of tables from information in the census.

Topic:   CENSUS AND STATISTICS.
